THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, GIVE THE GIFT OF A GETAWAY Gift Certificates are perfect for people who have everything but time to relax and shoppers who have no time to shop

What could be more important than finding the ideal present to surprise those hard-to-shop-for people on your list? Gift Certificates are the perfect choice for the person who has everything but time to relax. This holiday season, give the gift of a getaway to your choice of 3,200 B&Bs throughout the United States. Certificates never expire, so they're the gift that lasts, too. They're small enough to tuck into a stocking, yet big enough to be the best holiday gift of the year. Gift Certificates can be customized with your choice of beautiful color photos to match the occasion, and your own preferred message. If you're a last-minute shopper or have forgotten a key name on your list, fear not! For instant gratification, Gift Certificates can be printed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you'd rather not print your own, will be pleased to mail your gift certificates in attractive presentation envelopes. Just think, this holiday season, you can give the gift of romance and relaxation to all the special people in your life. Gift Certificates are available starting at $25, and are available for delivery online, by mail, or personally delivered by you after printing them right off your own computer. The choice of 12 different theme photos (holiday, wedding, friendship, etc.) that will enhance your personal message, plus the 3,200 places they can be redeemed, makes Gift Certificates the most versatile getaway gift possible.
